The Fanatical Deluxe Mystery Game returns for $4

Audio player loading…

Fanatical’s Deluxe Mystery Game box (opens in new tab) has returned, containing a random game selected from a list of the best PC offerings, from blockbusters to indies, for a fraction of their regular price. 

Spend £3.69/$4 on one of these boxes and you’re guaranteed one of the most popular games in the store. What you’ll receive is a mystery, obviously, but Fanatical has dropped some hints about what games you might find inside. 

“Build, conquer and rule your own kingdom. Learn to survive in a zombie-infested world. Explore a sprawling sky-bound city. Or shoot-and-loot to your heart's content.“ 

Very broad hints, admittedly. 

On Reddit (opens in new tab), people are listing what they received, narrowing things down a little bit. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY, Styx: Shards of Darkness, Civilization 6 and Resident Evil 2 are among them. 

The original box sold out in around seven hours, so while the deal technically ends in 11 days, stock could run out by tomorrow. There’s also a week left in the Reaper Bundle (opens in new tab), which crams ten games, including Homeworld Remastered and Renowned Explorers, into a £4.59/$5 deal.
